Andreja Andric (b. 1973) — Chorale X (Tað býr ein jungfrú) (2019) for organ
The composer writes: “Chorale Book” (1995–2019) is a collection of short works. It takes as a starting point “Musica enchiriadis,” a music treatise from 9th century, and combines modified organum and discantus technique to create simple five-part chorale-like textures in attempt to create a new moment in a distant past of an alternative music history. Strict rules of voice-leading make the process of writing of the pieces a ritualistic practice in itself. The collection seeks to create new meditative sound spaces for our time and the future.
